The original course at the Tippecanoe Country Club was designed by Joseph Roseman, however most now know it as a Pete Dye (almost) original. Although the latter’s name is now printed on the marquee, Dye's 1961 overhaul of Tippacanoe was less celebrated at the time, as it marked the first 18-hole golf course he designed. Accordingly, such a historic monument is a part of the Pete Dye Golf Trail, which means the general public can access tee times despite the country club nature of this course.

Dye would certainly become known for incorporating water into his final few holes later during his career, but Dye used the waterfront property first at Tippecanoe, as nos. 1, 2, and 3 begin right along the Tippecanoe River (boating members can call ahead and have food delivered to their vessel). The course then heads inland, taking a much more conservative tack than the Dye of later years.

That said, there are signs from the very beginning that a wilder Pete was tearing at his leash. Consider No. 10, which seems drivable at 265 yards, however the green is perched atop a pointed hill, almost forming a par four rendition of the Donald Ross-style “volcano” hole.
